An infographic from The Co-operative Insurance examines the amount of time people around the UK spend doing various activities in their free time. It’s interesting to see that, when added up, adults spend the equivalent of two years and six months cleaning, gardening and making other home improvements. This may be particularly useful for the less tidy among us. 😉
This could help Scrabble fans. Interesting data visualisation work by David Taylor of the distribution of English letters in the beginning, middle and end of words.
A new study recently published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology found that “Running for only a few minutes a day or at slow speeds may significantly reduce a person’s risk of death from cardiovascular disease compared to someone who does not run.”
The Science Daily article quotes the lead researcher, saying “The study showed that participants who ran less than 51 minutes, fewer than 6 miles, slower than 6 miles per hour, or only one to two times per week had a lower risk of dying compared to those who did not run.”
I’m so happy…!
